Daniel has always wanted to perform stand-up comedy, but with his crippling fear of crowds, open-spaces and public embarrassment, he has to think outside (or rather inside) the box, to live out his dream.

great way to start the night off
now next I place gentlemen is doing the
first-ever stand-up gig a big round of
applause for Daniel good evening ladies

family will see if a bit of money on the
coffin thank you they’re not laughing

the audience who’s afraid of anything
